The Adventures of Huck Finn is a 1993 Disney adventure film starring Elijah Wood and Courtney B. Vance; it is based on Mark Twain's novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huckleberry Finn, the half-literate son of a drunk, runs away from home and follows the Mississippi River with an escaped slave named Jim. Along the way, the duo encounter adventures with colorful characters like the King and the Duke, two con men who impersonate British visitors in order to swindle three sisters out of their fortune. Jim also re-educates Huck away from the racist views that he has grown up with. (108 minutes)
